Chrysanthemum Cocktail – #FlowerCocktailHour   

I had never heard of the Chrysanthemum cocktail – but with a name like that I had to investigate. It turns out it’s a century-old classic, dating back to 1916. Popular on cruise liners to Europe during prohibition, it’s a relatively simple drink a that’s light and herbal with a sweet ending.”

1 oz Bénédictine
3 dashes Absinthe
Garnish: Orange twist

Follow these Steps:

This variation on the classic Chrysanthemum cocktail uses a Yellow and Green Chartreuse combination in place of Benedictine, and subs in bitter Malört in place of the more traditional absinthe.)
